A Viking Kiss.  A 900 year-old Norse runic code on wooden tablets in some 80 inscriptions has
recently been broken by a runologist. The message was simply  “kiss me” .
Maybe this lovely kissing Viking couple sent this message to each other before this Viking kiss.

Ribe Viking Market is really international, but the Arab trader should beware of the Danish Viking
woman – she might give his beard a huge pull if he comes to close to her.
